5 Links for Writers

There's so much writing wisdom out there in the blogosphere that I thought I'd use today's post to point you in the direction of some interesting stops I made last week. I hope you find them useful!

Some wise words from two Curtis Brown literary agents about how you can only make your debut once - so make it count. http://www.ideastap.com/ideasmag/the-knowledge/curtis-brown-agents

An interesting discussion about the role of editors for those writers considering self-publishing. http://bloodredpencil.blogspot.com/2012/02/cues-from-coach-whats-editor-worth.html

Writing guru KM Weiland gives some punctuation tips: http://wordplay-kmweiland.blogspot.com/2012/02/writers-guide-to-punctuation.html

The amazing Margot Kinberg shares her thoughts (and encyclopedic knowledge) about past and present trends in crime fiction: http://margotkinberg.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/its-the-same-old-story-but-its-told-a-different-way/

Okay, I admit this one is a bit of a cheat - but you can't do better than Elizabeth Spann Craig's weekly post summarizing what she's discovered on the net and put up in her twitter feed. I don't know where she finds the time! I also don't know what I'd do without her. Thanks, Elizabeth. http://mysterywritingismurder.blogspot.com/2012/02/twitterific_12.html

  1. Elspeth - *deep blush* Thank you very much for the kind words, and thanks for including the link to my post.

    Also thanks for sharing those other terrific links. You really are right that there is so much good stuff out there in terms of helps for writers. It's almost overwhelming, but it is call useful and worth digesting.

  2. This is my third or fourth time back to your blog today. I kept clicking on links then x-ed out instead of returning. It's that kind of day. Great links, though! Thanks.

    1. Glad you linked through to the links. I've put that incorrectly, but I'm sure you get my meaning. Now you know how *my* day is going.
